Ricky Martin Meets with Uruguayan President

Ricky Martin Meets with Uruguayan President

Ricky Martin shows off his Uruguayan national football team jersey before a press conference on Wednesday (August 31) in Montevideo, Uruguay.

The 39-year-old Puerto Rican singer met with the country’s president, Jose Mujica, to discuss his campaign against child slavery and sex trade.

“I received an invitation from the presidency, and of course it is an honor to speak,” Ricky said (via Advocate). “If I can talk with leaders who believe in equality, how could I not do [that].”

To learn more about Ricky‘s work in stopping child trafficking, check out his organization’s website, RickyMartinFoundation.org!

    Aisha, with all do respect, were also a country, you know? A lot of people like him here, and it’s really good that he’s talking about his organization, whether it’s here, in my country, Uruguay, or in any other country in the world. It’s spreading the word that matters.

    I was at the concert last night in Montevideo, Uruguay…it was AWESOME!!!
    I had a blast, dancing and singing the whole time!!
    I’ve been a fan since I was a little girl and it was the first time I was able to see him live so I was really excited…it was sooo worth to wait for him to come to Uruguay once again!…
    Thank you Ricky for an amazing show, you are welcome to come to Uruguay anytime!
